ESPN's Chris Mortensen Wants You to Know That Fox's Jay Glazer Is a Good Reporter
ESPN ignored that story for a few days, because, allegedly, Chris Mortensen had looked into it and found out that it wasn't true.
Of course, it turned out that it was true -- Favre disputes that he offered any type of detailed game planning but admits that he did talk to the Lions, which is the thrust of what Glazer reported. That made both ESPN and Mortensen look late to the party -- and like they were questioning Glazer's reporting.
Glazer didn't appreciate that very much, and he made some radio appearances this week in which he publicly challenged ESPN to see whose stories were more accurate. It now appears that ESPN wants a truce.
In discussing the story this morning, Mortensen appeared on ESPN, acknowledged that Glazer broke the story and then added, "Jay's a really good reporter."
Given that, maybe next time ESPN won't wait two days before reporting stories that Glazer breaks.
